The Wonder Women of PBC

From Jenifer Forbes:

The Potomac Boat Club Lightweight women’s 4x (competing in non Olympic worlds trials next week) lines up with Lynda Carter AKA #wonderwoman in an epic race you don’t want to miss…. Coach Matt Madigan has to make a tough call for this seat race  — with Matt Madigan, Emily Schmieg and Morgan McGovern at Potomac Boat Club.

Expect increased rowing traffic on Friday mornings

One of the program coaches out of Thompson’s Boat Center said to expect increased rowing traffic on Friday mornings. The increasing popularity of recreational water sports, launching out of TBC has affected the rowing programs’ Friday afternoon practices. As a result, the programs will be practicing on Friday mornings.

    Meeting on K Street and Water Street Corridor Draft Concept Plan (25 June @ 10AM)

Meeting on K Street and Water Street Corridor Draft Concept Plan (25 June @ 10AM)

From Kate Sullivan

Perhaps slightly more likely to happen than a gondola is active consideration to construct a turnaround on Water Street with limited automobile access beyond 34th street.

There is to be an open discussion (flyer) beginning at 10am Saturday, June 25, at the Georgetown Waterfront Park (big blue tent at 31st and K). The point of the project is to join the Capital Crescent and Rick Creek Trails and enhance pedestrian, vehicle and bicycle safety.

And at least at this point, the drawings do not depict any street parking west of 34th, though the drawing does note the PBC parking area immediately in front of the club.
